The interests of athletes and the productive practice of sports pertaining to key subjects such as, the development of the sports culture, the fundamental human right to practice sports, and protecting individual athletes from exclusionary politics are related.

Therefore, everything about human rights, particularly social, health, and nutritional issues, should avoid political influence including wars.

It is crucial to Identify that human rights are universal and should not be used as a tool for political gains or manipulation. Instead, efforts should be made to address these issues through collaborative and non-biased approaches. Furthermore, it is crucial to acknowledge that addressing human rights issues requires a long-term commitment and sustained efforts.

It is not enough to simply make statements or take short-term actions; rather, there must be a genuine desire to create lasting change and improve the lives of all athletes, regardless of their political affiliations or beliefs.

I hope that all organizations and bodies involved in sports, including football, FIFA, and others that they abide by their charters and bylaws, prohibiting interfering with matters of religion and politics in sports.

By keeping politics out of sports, we can ensure that athletes and fans from all backgrounds can come together and enjoy the game without the fear of discrimination or prejudice.

It is important to remember that sports have the power to unite people and promote peace, and we should do everything in our power to protect that.
